Spurs duo Lloris, Alli to miss Liverpool, Inter clashes

Liverpool's Keita admits it will take time to be at his best

The 23-year-old moved to Liverpool from RB Leipzig during the summer transfer window, and the Guinea global has appeared in all four of his new team's Premier League matches this season.

The International break has been too long but we are finally about to see the light at the end of the tunnel with Spurs taking on Liverpool at Wembley on Saturday lunchtime in a potential slobberknocker.

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris will be out for "several weeks" with a thigh injury, but will retain the captaincy after his drink-drive conviction.

Pochettino will be disappointed to be without two of his key players as they look to bounce back from the Watford defeat when they take on fellow title rivals Liverpool this weekend.

"He's the first that regrets everything, and all that happened yesterday is not good", he said.

'Of course he doesn't feel great.

"Everyone can make a mistake, he made a mistake and he is suffering".

Pochettino confirmed the 31-year-old Frenchman, who was banned for driving for 20 months and fined 50,000 pounds ($65,545), would remain as the club's captain. He is punishing himself. "I am disappointed because we are going to miss him for this game and maybe the Champions League game against Inter Milan [on September 18]".

"Dele Alli hopes to be fit for the Londoners after missing England's game with Switzerland and although Harry Kane was quiet against Spain he is still the go to man for his club".

Asked if the World Cup victor would remain as captain, Pochettino said: "Of course".

Former Liverpool and Real Madrid striker, Michael Owen has predicted that Liverpool will beat Tottenham Hotspur in Saturday's Premier League fixture.
